‘A’ level Drama students have just returned from a packed 3 days, experiencing live theatre in London’s West End.
As part of the ‘A’ level Drama course students are required to experience live theatre and they achieved this in style! The group of 22 students took in four productions, a practical workshop and a backstage tour. This included:
- The Little Matchgirl and Other Happier Tales - performed in candle light at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, a recreation of a Jacobean Theatre.
- An Inspector Calls - a revival of the 1992 production at the playhouse theatre.
- Amadeus - performed on the Olivier Stage at the National Theatre, using live musicians and technical wizardry to create remarkable production.
- Peter Pan Goes Wrong - a comedy…where things do go wrong!
- A two hour practical workshop from a professional theatre designer in which students created their own ‘box-set’ designs for Frankenstein.
- A backstage tour of the National Theatre where the group were able to see the vast range of skills and professions needed to create live theatre.
Mr Doody, Head of Drama said “We all had a fantastic experience and, as always, our students were impeccably behaved and are a credit to Lady Manners School.”
